(1 min video) AWESOME Northern Lights Corona Display – Looking Straight Up!!!

Corona is my favorite type of northern lights. Watch what happens when Sean points the camera straight up!!!

To me, viewing this live here in Alaska, and even through this excellent video, my heart lights up! Displays such as this say something magnificent about the glory of our Creator!

“…the invisible things of Him since the creation of the world are clearly seen, being perceived through the things that are made, even his everlasting power and divinity….” – Romans 1:20

Sean is based out of North Pole, Alaska, near Fairbanks.

Photo Buddy!

William Wallace by my side, while Kelly sought small game — 4 years ago.

As William got older, he didn’t run as much, while Kelly would never stop investigating in his later years.

The intimate landscape I was trying to capture with the Canon is of two, red Columbine flowers and this little falls. The gentle wind was moving the Columbine just enough to thwart our effort. The telephoto lens magnifies any movement.

Grateful, I cherish this moment, together!!! How can a price tag be put on such a faithful companion?

I miss my boy.

Quality Control: Why Camera Lens Copies Vary – Home of the L-series: Inside Canon’s Utsunomiya lens factory — Master Craftsmen can tell when to apply more or less pressure by feel alone. Some processes, like this one, are considered so critical that they must be performed by hand

The home of the L-series: Inside Canon’s Utsunomiya lens factory

With decades’ of experience, Master Craftsmen (or ‘Takumi’) can tell when to apply more or less pressure by feel alone. Some processes, like this one, are considered so critical that they must be performed by hand.

It typically takes between 25-30 years before a lens polishing technician attains the status of ‘Meister’, and their experience is essential to the production line.
